International Shostakovich Prize
Since 2010, the International Schostakowitsch Days Gohrisch have been held in close cooperation with the Dresden State Capitol Dresden every year for three days. Dmitri Shostakovich (1906-1975) composed his famous eight string quartet in the health resort in 1960. His works reflect the difficult living conditions in the former Soviet Union. Every year, personalities are honored with the International Shostakovich Prize, Gohrisch, who have made a special contribution to Shostakovich’s work.
